So, who climbed Sierra Road to watch the race on Tuesday? I climbed it with a couple of friends. There were many hundreds (maybe 1000 or 2000) cyclists near the summit of the climb. Since the road was closed to cars 5 hours before the racers arrived, I assume that most of those people rode their bikes all the way up the hill (2000 foot vertical with a 10% average grade, several sections over 20%). You need to be a fairly good cyclist to ride all the way to the top and I didn't realize there were that many serious cyclists in the bay area. How many of you were up there?
